Healthy Ways to Gain Weight

Foods That Pack a Punch continued...

Dried fruits are a concentrated source of calories that can be tossed on salads, yogurts, cereals, desserts, and trail mixes -- or eaten alone.

Potatoes are a great vehicle for toppings. Or, when you cook potatoes, add in flavored oils, milk, cheese, chili, vegetables, and beans.

Fried foods are fine on occasion, but "a better choice than deep-fried foods would be stir-fried foods in healthy oils," Bender says.

Another easy way to add calories is to drizzle olive or canola oil on vegetables, salads, whole grains, soups, casseroles, and stews.

Looking for fast food options? Rosenbloom gives a nod to plain cheese pizza, and sub sandwiches made with lean meat.
